're on the "countdown" to the election. we'll give you compelling reasons why you must give president obama another four years. we'll focus on three election topics incredibly important issues that some how failed to make headlines in this brutal campaign. first the war on drugs. ethan nadelman said although obama has been a disappointment in some ways romney would be a disaster in fighting the the war on drugs. then in the aftermath of super storm sandy, climate change. it still has not been a critical part of our political debate. we'll ask josh becker why president obama deserves an a-plus in the way he handled hurricane sandy. and then we weigh in on what to expect if governor romney goes to the white house. we'll bring a look at the tight race with fresh statistics from dave goldberg, and finally jesse jackson why obama's track record is enough to give him a second term. we'll begin with the war on drugs. ethan nadelman wants to legalize marijuana among others things. he has a clear message. take marijuana out of the courts. tax it like other drug and move on. ethan. great to have you on the show.

'm in the news barrage of obama versus romney, my guests are taking on serious issues that require and deserve our full attention no matter who is in office in the next four years. tony blair is no longer on the front pages of the times or the guardian but his reprieve from politics has allowed him to deinvite most of his time to issues he cares about. supermodel petra nemcova's influence is different than blaresblairs but she's still leverages that influence. and carolyn miles works against things that only get worse child obesity. figuring out ways to figure out solutions to long-term problems, charles best, that's in the classroom. as lieutenant governor, after the elections are over, we need to refocus our attention on the kinds of long-standing issues illustrated by my guests. issues that may not make for shocking headlines but are usually much more deserving of our attention and our support. thanks for your attention tonight and anker please continue our conversation on twitter, facebook and google plus.
